"[T]he plot is superb... a perfectly constructed thriller, one piece of a mosaic next to the other, with dense seams and a subtle and surprising logic... [I]t holds you enthralled, in constant expectation of the next blow, the following inspiration."

Pietro Soria, La Stampa, Italy, on Give Me Your Eyes


"[A] skilfully constructed plot which efficiently and to great effect capitalizes on unpredictable turns of event…Hide Me in Your Heart more than holds its own in the stiff competition within the genre..."

Bror Rönnholm, Åbo Underrättelser, Finland, on Hide Me in Your Heart


"On the surface Hitler’s Enemies is a thriller, and its well-paced plot, original settings and lively set of characters hold the reader in thrall. But it is also a book which poses thought-provoking and perennially relevant questions about our responsibility for the society we live in."

Catrin Ormestad in Upsala Nya Tidning, Sweden, on Hitler's Enemies
